No issues here. I am on GTX 1060 and Ryzen 3600. I find that it takes a while to connect to GTA online though. Once in, it's all good.

I had to register for the rock star social club or something.....Well that's not what bugged me...the thing that bugged me it seems like everytime I join in or tried to sign in. It would do the verfication captcha thing. Asking me to click on the boxes which show buses, or hydrants, or crosswalks, or cars....etc...then asking to redo it.....about 5 times every time....really irritating. Played the game for a few minutes. Doesn't feel too intuitive with the mouse keyboard as I have dont know which buttons are assigned. Didn't go past the intro bank robbery gunfight part
You could’ve either went into settings to look at key binds or use a controller.

I just feel the game isn't optimized to run properly. Like some games where I have to set to run as "windows 7" kinda thing. I'm on Windows 10 also.
GTA 5 is another poorly done port from Rockstar. Most of their ports are poorly done/buggy as hell for a while if not forever.

Verifying the files should get any that were missed in Epic Launcher.

lol, the hackers in this game are killing me. One of the servers I joined had one guy forcing everyone to a specific location (via an "invite to apartment" exploit, I had no control over what was going on) then killing everyone all at once and he just kept doing it over and over again making the game unplayable. Had to switch to a different server. Super annoying.

Damn. Looks like Witcher 3 won't be free then.
Maybe I should grab it now while it is heavily discounted.

Thanks, just claimed GTA on the Epic Games Engine before it expires...

Now, how do I go about installing this game on my 256GB Laptop? I don't think I have space for however many GBs this takes. How are you all running it on your laptops?

Just wait until tomorrow morning and you'll see if the list is correct.
